im BACK!

well, well, well it feels good to be back! 🙂 I haven’t posted a blog in 2….3…5 months,which felt like a year. Who knew learning the whole gluten-free diet would take this long? After months or reading & learning I’m pretty confident that I have mastered the diet…LOTS of meats & veggies. I must say that I have found a love for gluten-free pasta, it tastes exactly like wheat pasta to me now. I’m still testing out new products to see what brands I like the best so that I know for the future. My mom was at an organic store last week & was kind enough to pick me up all sorts of goodies… GF bagels, english muffins, pizzas, oats ETC. can’t wait to try them out! ANYWAY enough about gluten, last week at the grocery I came across a HUGE bag of shrimp on sale…score! After searching for a new recipes to try I came across Black Bean, Corn & Shrimp Salad on the Myrecipes.com website & I decided to try it!

What you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
  • 3/4 cup bottled salsa
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

Not much has changed with me over the last couple months, except for our Boston Terrier Mimi passing away 😦 She became sick so unexpectedly, we were heart-broken. No dog will ever replace her, she was truly the BEST xoxo

Love MIMI, miss her everyday ❤

As hard as it was to think about a new dog, we decided it was only right to take in another Boston Terrier and show it the same love we showed Mimi ❤

Well, that sums up my last 5 months...boring I know 😉 Hope everyone is well & Happy FRIDAY!! 😀

Turkey Chili!!!!!!

Yummy, one of my favorites…turkey chili! My sister Taia hates chili so since she was working late tonight, I decided it would be a perfect night to make it considering the twins & I love it.
What you will need:

  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 2 packets of chili seasoning

(By accident I grabbed one taco seasoning 😦 )

  • 2 peppers one red, one green
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 cans of red kidney beans
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of stewed tomatoes
  • 1 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • cheddar cheese

Start by browning the ground turkey over medium heat, add garlic. Chop the onion & peppers and add to pot.

Now add tomatoes, beans, chili seasoning, tomato paste stir together & cook over low/medium heat for 20 minutes. (Make sure to stir every 5 minutes).

2 steps & your done! how easy was that? Top chili with cheddar cheese, I also added tortilla chips to my bowl to scoop the chili with! 🙂
